The Injury

Posted on February 4th, 2015 in Uncategorized by farnz

Well, I definitely can say I wasn’t jumping up and down (literally) to “Join the Club” so to speak.  Like a lot of people on here, it happened doing something you love to do, for me it was playing basketball.  It was toward the end of the night, playing defense, went out for the block, then tried to take off running down the court…. But my Achilles wasn’t having it..  Heard a loud pop and felt like my heel couldn’t keep me up, very weird feeling, nothing like I’ve ever felt before.  I’ve had many ankle sprains, but this was different.  Went hobbling off to the side.  Luckily I was with a bunch of coworkers that were gracious enough to stop and help me out.  Headed to the ER, confirmed it was an Achilles injury, but wasn’t sure to what extent.  Was given a boot and some pain meds and was told to call the  ankle specialist on Monday (this happened on a Thursday night).  I decided it was best to call the next day, and lucky I did, I was able to get in on Friday to see the Doc.  He confirmed it was torn, but ordered an MRI to confirm to what extent.  Scheduled surgery for 1/13/15 so spent the entire weekend researching surgery, rehab, timelines.  This site was so amazing for everyone’s input and experiences, very helpful.  Thanks to everyone for sharing your stories.
